So today I had the pleasure of giving a talk at BSides Cleveland. BSidesCLE was had held at the House of Blues which turned out to be a great venue for this event. The speakersĀ  room very large and allowed for the participants to be relaxed. At the same time the lobby was a great place to kick back and chat with people if you wanted. I titled my talk “Please Step Away from the Binaries: Educating Security.” I have been thinking about a way to incorporate what my wife has been doing for the last 6 years in the space of Response to Intervention with my passion for information security. When looking at the common “People, Process, Technology” diagrams it came to me that security often misses the People part.

So I put together my thoughts on how information security professionals can improve educational opportunities, thus improving security. If you weren’t at the event, which was fantastic, you can see my talk here. My talk starts around 9 minutes, but if you aren’t familiar with the concept of BSides it is good to watch the introduction. I want to thank all the people who worked very hard to put BSidesCLE together, and to the other speakers and participants who made thingsĀ  interesting. I look forward to the next BSidesCLE.

I am going to try and put my thoughts into a series of blog posts and being to expand on areas I didn’t get very detailed in during my talk. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this talk and the ideas around security education programs.
